InfoWatch says the alliance aims to to drive collaboration with developers.

InfoWatch Group, a maker of end-to-end enterprise cybersecurity solutions, and Microsoft have unveiled an integration solution created to secure information traffic of enterprise users of Microsoft Office 365.

The integration of the flagship DLP product InfoWatch Traffic Monitor and Microsoft Cloud App Security service (which is part of Enterprise Mobility + Security solution is intended to ensure security in the cloud environment), will allow customers to centrally manage data protection policies for both desktop and cloud users and gain like-for-like centralised access to all incidents related to data leak threats.

The integration is based on internet content adaptation protocol (ICAP), a technology that makes a copy of Microsoft Office 365 server traffic and sends it to InfoWatch Traffic Monitor server. The DLP system automatically applies analysis technologies to identify security policy breaches and alerts security officers to such breaches.

"This seamless integration of Microsoft products helped us build an effective enterprise security solution for customers that use productivity tools in Office 365 cloud environment," said Marina Batalova, head, Integrated Solutions at InfoWatch Group. "We plan to drive collaboration with developers of popular business apps and office software and add new features to InfoWatch enterprise cybersecurity solutions."

According to InfoWatc, a key advantage of the integrated solution is the ability to control and prevent confidential data leakage, which can be very accurately detected owing to unique proprietary linguistic data flow analysis technologies being part of InfoWatch Traffic Monitor. The company said enterprises that will adopt the new solution will be able to see a complete picture of corporate data movement in Microsoft Office 365.
